Monday, October 3

BDBs: One, in panel 4.

Panel 1: Yep, another week. Well, maybe a little less than a week. But at any rate, I was right; Saturday wasn't the end of it. :::pats self on head::: ETA And yes, I would have preferred to be wrong!

Panel 2: Another mention of bannock. And gee, I have no idea what the punchline's gonna be.

Panel 3: Nice turkey neck, Elly. OTOH, the rising smoke is a nice visual, illustrating awakening, intensity and passion.

Panel 4: Sigh. Elly looks like a ten-year-old at an amusement park, which gives the impression that Elly gets a childlike pleasure from shopping, the same way John gets a childlike pleasure from his trains. What-evah.

Again, this is something that was funnier a few years ago, when it was explored in more depth. Elly and John went on vacation to the US, and Elly twittered at John about how frustrated she was when he drove. "I like to take my time, meander slowly, stopping at lovely little shops and eating in lovely little restaurants! We get to a nice town with nice scenery, and you want to blast right through!" John [thinking]: "That's because I don't WANT To stop at lovely little shops and lovely little restaurants!" Now, though, it's been reduced to "Shopping...wheeeee!" Haw, haw.
